Sam Francis was an American artist known for his exuberantly colorful, large-scale abstract paintings. His practice incorporated elements from Abstract Expressionism, Color Field painting, Impressionism, and Eastern art to create a unique style of painterly abstraction. Strongly influenced by Jackson Pollock, Francis’ splattered canvases built on the drip stylings of the AbEx first wave, working within the limits of white space and the edges of the canvas. Born Samuel Lewis Francis on June 25, 1923 in San Mateo, CA, the painter and printmaker travelled widely during his career, and was closely aligned with the Art Informel movement while living abroad in Paris in the 1950s. Francis died on November 4, 1994 in Santa Monica, CA at the age of 71. He was a founding trustee of Los Angeles’s Museum of Contemporary Art, and his paintings can be found in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Kunstmuseum Basel, and the Centre Pompidou in Paris, among many others.
